Toe-box interiors of Gaynor Minden pointes showing the platform pads
Ballet-sex: Returning readers know that ballet-sex - as I define it - is a woman being penetrated while en pointe when her pelvic muscles are clenched from being balanced on the tips of her toes giving her a much tighter vaginal grip. It can be done face-to-face with her backed against a wall or some other vertical immovable object, or she can be entered from the rear while bent over with her trunk horizontal with the floor in which position she can take a longer man. In both positions she should be sur les pointes a la seconde so her partner can stand comfortably between her legs and ideally with their pelvises at the same level so he is thrusting straight in.
Pointe-shoes and ballet-sex: While I perform in special order Freed Classics hand made to my measurements by the Crown maker, Freeds are performance shoes made of traditional materials paper, canvas, paste and leather and won’t hold up well when used for ballet-sex because of the need to stay continuously en pointe for the duration of penetration typically twenty to forty minutes. Fifteen minutes into the encounter the woman’s sweat will have soaked through her toe-pads and by twenty-five begun melting the paste causing the blocks to deform and no longer support and protect her toes. Even jet gluing the blocks won’t prevent the blocks from melting for very long.
Another problem with wearing pointes made from traditionally materials for ballet-sex is that the shanks will often shatter. That’s because the woman tires of holding herself balanced over the blocks and puts her weight on her heels ‘sitting in her shoes’ which causes the shanks to break. Or, if his pelvis is slightly higher than hers her partner’s thrusts can lift her off the floor and when he withdraws she’s dropped back on the platforms, which is called thrust-drop, driving her toes into the inner platform of the toe-box and possibly crushing the shanks as her feet flex to take her drop weight. Special ordered 3/16ths leather shanks, which if 3/4tered will flex and not break, can be worn to prevent breaking Freed shanks and several other makers now offer polymer shanks, but even with polymer shanks paper, hessian (burlap) and paste blocks still melt from the moisture and there is no thrust-drop protection for toes.
Gaynor Minden’s toe-box and shank: With the unitized polymer toe-box and shank wearing Gaynor pointes for ballet-sex eliminates problems with melting toe-boxes and shattered shanks and provides internal toe-box padding for the long intervals balanced on our toes. If the woman is wearing hard shanked shoes Gaynors also allow her to rest by putting her weight on her heels which is particularly important when stretching calf muscles. The wearer being able to put her weight on her heels w/o destroying the shanks makes it so much easier alternating feet, balancing on the toes of one foot briefly to flex her other foot to minimize the likelihood of calf cramps during an encounter.
Thrust-drop and Platform pads: Thrust-drop, which happens all too frequently, usually occurs when the male partner is much taller than the woman and she isn’t standing on an equalization platform of some sort and unless the couple is in an encounter salle there is usually nothing for her to stand on to equalize the height of her pelvis to his when she is en pointe. Wearing toe-pads in traditional shoes to protect against thrust-drop is not nearly as comfortable or effective and will often result in badly bruise nails and sometimes broken toes.
Thick soft internal toe-box platform pads are standard in all GM pointes and are wonderful for prolonged intervals on the tips of the toes. Even though my toes go numb when I’ve be en pointe continuously for more than a few minutes (which I think is common for dancers wearing properly fitting pointes) for those of us into ballet-sex the platform pads help minimize the discomfort and damage of being repeatedly thrust-dropped while en-pointe. I buy my Gaynors sized so I can wear toe pads in them. That way when my feet swell when I’m menstrual I can wear Gaynors with just the standard inner padding when I play and still be comfortable.
Calves: Hard shanked Gaynors are as good as it gets as far as comfort and support are concerned during ballet-sex. That leaves physical training of the legs, strengthening the ankles and especially the calves to develop the stamina to endure the long intervals en pointe while penetrated. Nutritionally it’s a matter of a balanced diet and staying well hydrated to replace the electrolytes lost through sweat. Physically it’s a matter of intense training with male partners and a suction base dildo mounted on a studio mirror. Working at least an 30 minutes a day while penetrated en pointe five times a week to strengthen and increase the endurance of calves should keep an escorts calves in good shape.
